Re: ship records back to Europe from New York #usa
There is very little in the way of records available on so-called "Birds of passage", who returned to Europe. The only collections that I'm aware of are located at NARA in Philadelphia -- see the article "NARA Coast to Coast: Emigration Records at the National Archives at Philadelphia, Part 1" (I don't think they ever got around to publishing Part 2): http://blogs.archives.gov/online-public-access/?p=3273
You may get lucky and find their outbound journey at a connecting port, such as LIverpool -- try searching for them on a site that specializes in European records, such as FindMyPast.
